the debate, your reaction. follow our live coverage on c- span, c-span radio, and c- span.org. >> defense secretary leon panetta today said it was obvious the killing of four americans at a u.s. consulate in libya was a terrorist attack. he also said more attacks on american soldiers by afghan soldiers are likely. the remarks came this afternoon with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. >> since the general dempsey just returned from the war front, we thought it would be worth making some comments on afghanistan -- since the general did see just returned from the war front -- since general dempsey just returned from the war front. i will invite general dempsey to share his comments as well. last week, we completed the drawdown of 33,000 surge forces that the president ordered to afghanistan in december 2009. as i said in announcing this milestone last week, it is clear that the surge allowed us to turn a very important corner in 2011. it accomplished the primary objectives of reversing the taliban's momentum on the battlefield and dramatically increased the size and capability of th

is -- who answer the answer and where do we find it? but i see things -- i've been with the defense department for 35 years. everything is sigh saturday silent. i'm hoping you will do something about that in the educational system. starting with -- [inaudible] >> yeah. a lot there. both -- a couple of things. ultimately the question is what do we value? what skills are we trying to teach? .. >> it is clearly not the norm. it is clearly more the exception. i always get asked, what's the appropriate federal role. i think about that every day, what's our role, the state role, the local role. one of the best uses of time and resources, i think, is for us to shine a spotlight on best practices to help with more resources, with more flexibility, whatever it might be. so wherever we're seeing those skill sets being taught, shining a spotlight, convening groups of teachers and principals to talk about those things, we think, are really, really important. so we can help to try and build that culture. long way to go. the other thing that's emerging that i'm really interested in that's related
in northern virginia, technology and defense jobs, and using them as pawns to a demand higher taxes or a budget deal. now, these are tough times, but out of adversity, we can create a more confident, caring, and prosperous america, and that is a positive agenda i will forward to discussing today, and the ida is what is best for the virginia businesses. >> governors, thanks to both of you. this is a high-profile senate race for the nation, certainly very important for the commonwealth, and it is also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate, so i want to ask you about 47% we heard about this week. governor romney in summer marks at a fundraiser taped earlier this year talked about how there is some 47% of the people that do not pay federal income tax. he said that he believes they are -- that they feel they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generally, about too many virginians, too
williams could have done that. the defense is saying no way, this is what happened here. you had evidence back then in 1984 that amos norwood had a sexual relationship. >> the victim. >> the victim, with terrance williams and not only that, you also had evidence back in 1984 that amos norwood, the victim in the case, had been abusing other boys as well, and you didn't turn that over to the defense. well, the judge listened to both sides and said to the defense you're right, this evidence should have been turned over to the defense back in 1984. the jurors should have had an opportunity to hear that when they were making their decision. jurors didn't have an opportunity to hear that and, ashley, you know this. i interviewed one of the jurors from 1984 just last week. they said had i known then what i know now, i would not have voted for the death penalty. >> not just that juror. already other jurors and actually isn't it the widow of amos as well has come out saying i am not so sure i am comfortable with this death penalty? do i have my wires crossed? >> the widow came out and said that sh

interested in foreign policy and even issues like the defense budget? and that's why issues like that and the onces we don't know about that make me wary of all these straight line projections we're make in the future based on what things look like right now. >> anyone want to address the point? >> which point? >> the point about . >> pick on any of the points. i meant the point about iran and the likely hood we would enter in to military action there regardless of who wins. [inaudible] >> question from the audience? >> yes, sir. front row. >> microphone approaching you from the left. governor romney said he wants to create 12 million jobs during his term, that's 250,000 jobs a month. in the past, the u.s. has always been an exporter. and that was what created jobs. how do you see his promise of creating 12 million jobs in four years? >> unlikely. [laughter] >> okay. that's one view. anybody want to elaborate on that? >> look, i think we are in a completely different, you know, job market. we're about -- a few weeks during the convention which is bill clinton lineback in 1990 if
as the world's policeman. i do believe in a strong national defense, but the optimum word is defense, not offense. we do not have the money to continue the wars. our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> todd akin. >> it is important to have a foreign policy to start with. you have to have some basic principles, the guidelines. that needs to an acute -- include iraq, afghanistan, a whole lot of other countries as well. the problem is we have not had that. what it seems like the vacillating policies we have almost punished our friends and helped our enemies. we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland. we had plans to build missile defense. we gave that is a concession to russia. how much has russia helped us with iran? how much has russia helped us with the situation in afghanistan? giving special attention to chavez and turning our back on netanyahu when he wanted to meet with the president, the sending of mixed signals is very destructive to foreign policy. in the case of egypt, for instance, we talked a little bit about that in a pr
programs for defense companies, transportation companies. they get federal dollars so they can do these programs. these programs go away january 1st pairs of these companies including defense, health care, transport will have to notify employees by november, the end of october to notify employees their jobs are cut. so in addition to the largest tax increase were going to see since world war ii, were also going to see a host of layoffs at year-end, all as a result of ignoring the fiscal class, which is why there is so much talk about it. so you know, i do think we are walking on shaky ground and unfortunately the president has been unable to provide the leadership required to get these two groups together, the right and the left. you know, part of the job of the commander-in-chief has to be to compromise and bring these two groups together. for congress to say we're going on vacation for five weeks and then come back and say we go away again until after the election, with nothing done about the fiscal class is truly irresponsible. and the fact that the leadership -- there is no le
the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and be that wrong. >> greta: do you think she was perhaps hung out to dry? i thought it was unusual that the ambassador of the u.n. would make that appearance after that event? i would have expected some other member
these political games for the armed services. we need to have a strong economy and national defense. but the last thing we need to be doing is having these devastating cuts to our military readiness and that's what has to happen is stop these devastating cuts, come up with the cuts that have the right priority and make sure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedoms here have the best armments, the best equipment and making sure we get those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia and not use then am a pon to raise taxes. >> no one's talking about using the military or veterans as pons, i mean, i haven't heard that stated except george kind of throw in that charge at me and that's the kind of charge that you ought to be more careful about. i take second to no one in appreciating the service of our folks in active service and in our military i was governor in the middle o two wars. our virginia guards people, 1,500 of them deployed. i went to the deployments and the wakes in afghanistan and i celebrate the fact that all units are home. we have to get to a resolve
here in northern virginia. virginia technology and defense jobs, and using them as pawns demand higher taxes, higher taxes for a budge deal. now, these are tough times, but out of this adversity, we can create a more confident, caring and prosperous america, and that's the positive agenda i look forward to discussing today, and the test is which approach is best for job creating virginia businesses. >> moderator: governors, thanks to both of you. i want to begin by talking about the role of government in virginia and the country. this is a high-profile senate race for the nation, certainly very important further commonwealth, and it's also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate. i'd like to ask you about the 47% that we heard about this week. governor romney, in some remarks that were taped at a fundraiser earlier this year, talked about how there's 47% of the country that does not pay federal income tax. he said that they believe they are victims who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to hous
. >> thank you. megyn: breaking news on maas i have layoff -- massive layoffs on the defense industry and how the notices were supposed to go out right before the election. not now. >>> plus, with just five weeks until the votes are counted and the head of the military voter participation project says military voting looks like it will be way behind where it should be, and the numbers are staggering. he will join us live next on what and who he thinks is to blame here.

is the technology. i am curious to your view of the effects of missile defenses with to have a lot of different arms control. >> it is good to see you. a picture of arms control over the next few years, from the perspective of president obama, and he has made no secret of the fact of his initiative that he is eager to pursue step-by-step in reductions of nuclear weapons. that is one priority goal for this administration. it is a preamble to the start treaty. it is a goal they have both articulated. i think we will be looking for ways to accomplish those for the reductions. it laid out three goals for the next round of negotiations. he said we want to seek reductions in non-strategic nuclear weapons, non-deployed nuclear-weapons, and for the reductions and deploy nuclear weapons. to those three categories are new to the arms reduction process. we've always gone after weapons that are deployed on their delivery vehicle. this is what we have always counted and reduced. this is what you can see even from overhead satellites. it is important to recognize the next age of arms control but president obama h
gets defensive, that's when he makes mistakes. the $10,000 bet came when governor romney was being defensive about his health care policy and there have been other instances where other debaters have been able to get him on the defense and when that happens, he tends to look bad. >> bill: all right. you know that president obama is going to try to do that. he's going to question his health care criticism, his flip flops on various issues. he's going to press him from very specifics on your tax program and what you're going to phase out as far as deductions are concerned, all of that. is the governor going to be able to parry, can he parry? can he think fast enough on his feet to block inevitably what's going to come his way? >> he absolutely can. if you remember the debates with newt gingrich, speaker gingrich was challenging him on his immigration policy. he was really going after him about deporting grandmothers and he thought on his feet and came back with a great response. we can't deport 11 million grandmothers. there aren't 11 million grandmothers that we're deporting. so he
in the department of defense for managing the supply chain and then all of a sudden decide that you are going to apply that single solution to everything the department of defense by is. we wouldn't people to buy anything if that were the case. >> the only thing i would add is the trusten suppliers of objects but also as melissa referred to in her talk those that support those things the trust that might install or maintain them as well. >> i think we are talking about multiple definitions of a trusted supplier to the if you look at it from the business point of view, many of the supply years have to go through a set of requirements that means whatever those security brandt integrity of the overall company whether it's a background investigation the companies have to go through to supply to other companies to meeting all of the legal requirements, for example the corruption act for mean osha standards and i'm just citing the ones in the united states they have to meet the requirements of many different countries laws, and sometimes it is difficult to become a supplier to a high brand-name a a
or the national security. 90% of jobs in virginia, from the defense industry -- 19% of jobs in virginia. we have put forward solutions that did not aggravate a bad economy. we do not want to raise taxes. >> if there is a split decision, each party will have to compromise to avoid taking the country over the cliff. what compromises the believe your own party will have to make to walk the country back from the precipice? >> we have to get control over spending. we have to keep certain financial commitments -- social security, medicare, medicaid. the defense budget is bloated. we have a bigger defense budget than other countries. people against our national security interests are called terrorists. those are the people i was pursuing when i was mobilized after 9/11. that doesn't mean we need to lose those jobs. first he supported a sequester and then he didn't. it is to blame game. what need to do is take a scalpel and look at the outsourcing of our defense. we need to make sure we're not sending things to halliburton and places like that. the defense department should be able to support itself. th
and hasn't given us spiecifics, lets be fair. >> mitt romney is the defense lawyer in the courtroom, he's going to say the prosecution, president obama, hasn't made his case, his record isn't enough for re-election and i'll not give all the details of what i'll do, what a romney presidency would mean, make your choice based on the president, that's your plan? >> what is the plan is that the public will have plenty of detail and information to make a judgment on governor romney and what his plan is for the future. but let's look at what the president is saying as well. you're right, the president has had four years to lay this out and now a campaign. and the president just trying to run out the clock. he desperately wants to run out the clock with platitudes which sound nice and i give him that. the president is very good at that. but in the end, i think that both sides have to look at this campaign and say, what are we going to lay out over the next 36 days and that's i think what's really important. and i think governor romney will lay out some very important points over the next 36 da
as little as $17,000 a year will then will be put in jeopardy, the hundreds of thousands of defense and technology jobs, and in my view, the men and women in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to raise taxes on job creating small businesses. >> when you eliminate deductions, would you do that for everyone or high income earners? >> first, i'll point out the last rhetoric about taking veterans hostage on economic issues. that's exactly the kind of name calling we've got too much of in washington. we can debate policies, but that's the name calling we've seen too much in washington, and what's wrong with washington is not going to be fixed by more of that. now, back to the issue. george talked about his tax proposal. he was a u.s. senator. he was a senator for six years. during his time in the senate, his fiscal policies turned masses surpluses into massive deficits. the federal deficit went up $16,000 every second george allen was the united states senator. voted to raise the debt ceiling four times, voted to raise his own salary four times. now he's
bought that facility, we're told not with money from the defense department, instead the funding is apparently coming from the justice department. congress, by the way, not involved, and some say this is an end run that while it's not illegal in any way, it is highly unusual. in 2009 president obama did send a memo to both the justice and defense d.s to arrange for ownership of the facility and prepare to take on federal prisoners, possibly some from guantanamo bay. a number of republican lawmakers, chief among them congressman frank wolf from virginia, led efforts to block the use of federal dollars so it couldn't be bought. wolf has also said he does not trust the defense department not to send gitmo prisoners to how thompson. senator dick durbin's office confirms the sale. you mentioned the amount, $165 million, and apparently this is a direct deal between the federal government and illinois meaning congress is not involved. durbin's office also says today that gitmo prisoners are not going to be located at this facility. that is the official word. we're working to conform mor
. >> reporter: defense attorney bernard grossberg. what about some of the folks who do have rap sheet, who do have a history of criminal records, what about the idea of them walking the street here in massachusetts? >> well, we don't like some of these guys getting released. that's what the law requires. and we will do it because we're the commonwealth of massachusetts, and we try to do the right thing. >> reporter: grossberg says what happened in massachusetts should prompt other states to examine their own labs. >> i think in our system, our criminal justice system, there is nothing worse than an unfair, unconstitutional conviction. >> reporter: in dookhan is convicted, she could face more than 20 years in prison. elaine quijano, cbs news, boston. >> reid: a new report says drug ask alcohol abuse is on the rise among amtrak employees. among other findings the report says mechanics and signal operators tested positive at four time the rate of employees at other railroads last year. amtrak management said it will step up random drug testing. a washed out in drought-ridden west texas. rain con
button issue of same-sex marriage. one case on appeal deals with the defense of marriage act which the obama administration it will no longer defend in court. another appeal involved california's prop 8 that would amend the state's constitution so california would recognize marriage between man and woman as legal. >> this is one of cases you have seen it from the cases that were started filing that would make it to the supreme court. >> we could know as early as monday morning whether the justices have decided to take up both of those cases. >> gregg: shannon, thanks. >> heather: a tsa agent busted for stealing from passengers is speaking out. he says that he may have been one of the most prolific at tsa but when he tried to sell a stolen camera on ebay. estimating he stole $800,000 of items from flyers. he said he did it because he wasn't getting paid enough and he wasn't treated right by former colleagues but he wasn't the only one. that stealing was very commonplace. >> it was so easy, one day i walked out of there with video game nintendo wii, i walked out in my hand and nobody
will host a meeting of nato defense ministers in brussels next week. necessity will likely discuss the nato mission and afghanistan beyond 2014 when combat operations are scheduled to end. >>> japan's defense minister says full scale operations of the osprey aircraft have been delayed. parts need to be replaced. 12 tilled rotor ospreys arrived as a u.s. air base in western japan in july for a temporary stay. six were flown to the air station in okinawa on monday. three more followed the next day. he told reporters that u.s. officials said two of the three ospreys require maintenance that includes replacing certain parts. >> translator: if an aircraft needs replacement parts, it usually means there is some problem with them. >> he says he does not believe the u.s. has a clear time tiebl or making the ospreys a fully operational unit. the u.s. military says they hope to start full operations within this month. >>> a vehicle named curiosity has been satisfying our curiosity ever since it landed on mars. nasa's rover transmitted pictures, even sound since it landed two months ago and the people
challenged woman. holly hughes is with me. you're a criminal defense. used to be a prosecutor. have you ever seen a case like this? and what is the explanation? kind of seems like a path mentality that all these girls worked together to do such a horrible thing. >> it is. and unfortunately we're seeing more and more of this with our young people. we're seeing children who wouldn't ordinarily do something like this if they were by themselves. they would probably just walk by that sweet lady. 48 years old and mentally disabled. why don't you pick on somebody your own size? this is so disturbing. that's why we've seen them charged as adults here. they're all underage. they could have been taken into the juvenile system. but they have all been charged as adults. they're facing 20, 40 years depending on how many charges are stacked against them. >> it almost seems like they were feeding off each other in this video. how damaging is that video to a judge, to a jury seeing that and how brutal it was? >> that's exactly right. and it's not just that some of them are throwing punches. but it's that en

to the department of defense, that's only a tiny representation of the real number, which is closer to 19,000, because most victims don't come forward. and of the cases that are reported, only a fraction are prosecuted. >> i knew joining the military was going to be a sacrifice. this wasn't the intended sacrifice that i was willing to make. >> reporter: in darchelle mitchell's case, the petty officer she says raped her was acquitted and it was her navy career that suffered. >> my request to re-enlist was denied and my assailant, he was advancing in the middle of all of it. >> he was promoted? >> he was promoted. >> my sexual response coordinator basically told me don't expect anything to happen from that. you need to find a way to get over it. >> former air force sergeant laura sellinger said her command made getting over it all the more difficult. by ignoring her request to keep her rape private. she said they announced it to her squadron, and she was harassed. >> and i just went to iraq through hell. and now i'm dealing with i'm a slut, i'm a whore. i've never been so hollow. >> reporte

. it is not a good feeling. the defense minister says that when it comes to military spending, the iron dome defense system, remember this is not the first time that egyptians ransacked an embassy. they ransacked the israeli embassy eight months ago. this is the second time in one year that in egypt embassy is fair game. the prime minister called obama immediately and obama got on of holland -- the phone and said, do something about this. protect these people. she will routinely say that this is the best president in american history in terms of support for israel. in terms of military spending, we have never got more support. but if you ask people on the street, they have a very different reading of the feelings of obama to israel. >> i had taken the position up until recently that israel should not be an issue in the race because the parties are both supportive of israel. it should relate to the domestic issues where there is clear cleavage between the two. that has been my position. i don't think that anyone can rightly say that president obama is the best president. i think reagan was. i think s
, and reintegrate the revolutionaries in the defense and interior ministries, as well as other state institutions. before the first time since independence, we have political parties in the political arena there is freedom of expression in the press. there is unconditional freedom to demonstrate, the freedom of association, freedom to set up several institutions, unions as well as political and social, intellectual organizations without any limitations. this has led to a free dialogue and participation by all peoples in all parts of the world. mr. president, the time of the previous regime for more than four decades saw fragrant -- flagrant violations of human rights, torture, detention without trial, expeditionary killing, humiliation of citizens, mistreatment. the when the revolution erupted on 17 february through peaceful demonstrations, the previous regime faced them down with bullets and oppression in a grave violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. hence the human rights council suspended libya's membership in said council. and set up an international fact-finding c
